I have multiple duplicate files, in many different folders buried in many "need to organize" folders.

Particularly my music collections. After 4 "back-up sessions" I need assistance finding, moving, and deleting the duplicate folders. I'll probally be able to save around 400-500gb this way .

I'm a digital hoarder.... what can i say?

Hmmm, well I just followed the guide to a T, with the GPT partition formatting. And for some reason my SSD is only being recognized as Sata 3Gb/s while my other HDD is recognized as Sata 6Gb/s hmm, any idea?

Is it in the correct port? And what says it is at 3GB/s?

Yep same ports, didn't change any. Intel RST is showing the speed for my drives. Also I ran AS SSD and it was about 250 seq/read speed.

Try reinstalling Intel drivers.

Ok, for some weirdo reason I had to unplug it the SSD and plug it back in and it works now, it was even the same ports, weird weird. BUT ANYWAY.

Ok so here is my comparison of the M4 changes.

M4, 1024 Alignment, MBR


M4, 4096 Alignment, GPT


Now to me it looks like an overall improvment with the partition changes. Right? Also how come on the 4096 alignment it gives a funky number for alignment?

Wow, I never had a difference in performance! Nice, I guess there is always potential for others!

Not sure, but it is 4k aligned and you are good.
